Conservative attorney George Conway used a lengthy Twitter thread to mock President Donald Trump over his many, many geopolitical gaffes.

The husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway ― who despite his wife’s role has become a staunch critic of the Trump White House ― on Tuesday tweeted 20 examples of Trump’s mistakes, from calling countries by the wrong name to making errors about where they are located.

“A thread for those who think @realDonaldTrump could find Ukraine on a marked map,” began Conway, who is leading The Lincoln Project campaign that aims to ensure Trump’s defeat in the 2020 election.

A thread for those who think @realDonaldTrump could find Ukraine on a marked map:

.@realDonaldTrump thinks Belgium is a city, albeit a pretty one. https://t.co/0CQWpckgk7

.@realDonaldTrump seems to think Paris is in Germany. (It kind of was for a few years in the 1940s, I guess.) https://t.co/RF5e3Rb1VO

.@realDonaldTrump thinks there are countries on this planet called “Nipple” and “Button.” (Do NOT, under any circumstances, ask him to point them out. PLEASE.)https://t.co/1rRD1SOw0C

Also, @realDonaldTrump didn’t understand that when it’s the afternoon in Washington, it’s the middle of the night in Tokyo. https://t.co/1rRD1SOw0C

In a meeting with leaders from the *Baltic* states, @realDonaldTrump thought he was talking to people from the *Balkans*. (No, seriously. This created quite a stir in diplomatic circles.)https://t.co/F5DzrV2E7y

I have to say that really is my personal favorite. @realDonaldTrump is there trashing the presidents of Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia for the breakup Yugoslavia, and they’re like, WTF. And then it dons on them—Balkans, Baltics … buffoon.https://t.co/ecZ4a9qOx1

Don’t forget that beautiful border wall @realDonaldTrump is building between Colorado and Mexico. https://t.co/xfFrhFScg9

Oh, wait. A small correction. @realDonaldTrump thought Nipple and Button were in India, not separate countries. My bad—we all make mistakes. Sorry. https://t.co/TfvMJ05n9m

.@realDonaldTrump once bombed Syria but thought he bombed Iraq. https://t.co/Njl96SgjNL

.@realDonaldTrump once got a call from the president of *South* Korea, but then told hundreds of journalists that he’d gotten a call from the leader of *North* Korea. https://t.co/qtGtTS2WSf

“After I had won, everybody was calling me from all over the world. I never knew we had so many countries.” — @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/b7n5Q3hJZF

— George Conway (@gtconway3d) January 28, 2020

.@realDonaldTrump once told the prime minister of India, “It’s not like you’ve got China on your border.” (India has a 2,520-mile border with China.)https://t.co/U5ncPjFbbp

.@realDonaldTrump has to be told in 2018 that Ireland isn’t part of the U.K. ….https://t.co/mQtXIyShb6

— George Conway (@gtconway3d) January 28, 2020

… yet made the mistake again in 2019. https://t.co/XsRCDJlxbe

— George Conway (@gtconway3d) January 28, 2020

And just a few days ago, @realDonaldTrump earned global mockery when met with the president of *Iraqi* Kurdistan but thought he was taking to someone from *Syria*. https://t.co/tJjHWhZ3vk

When Gordon Sondland called @realDonaldTrump on July 26 and said he was in Kyiv, Trump had to ask whether Sondland was in Ukraine, according to the testimony of embassy staffer David Holmes. https://t.co/IXRiivo82z pic.twitter.com/RGkFTYCZ15

National-security officials once showed @realDonaldTrump a map of Korea. What he saw stunned him: He had no idea Seoul was so close (15 mi) to the DMZ, well within the range of KPA-GF artillery. https://t.co/8JZTJQ5Qqt

— George Conway (@gtconway3d) January 28, 2020

.@realDonaldTrump asked, “Why is Seoul so close to the North Korean border?”And then, referring to the 10 million inhabitants of South Korea’s capital, he said, “They have to move!”https://t.co/8JZTJQ5Qqt

In 2018, @realDonaldTrump didn’t know the difference between England and the United Kingdom, our closest ally. https://t.co/FItdET3MV5

— George Conway (@gtconway3d) January 28, 2020

And in 2019, @realDonaldTrump remained blissfully ignorant, and confused about, the distinction between England and the UK. He seems to think that England changed its name. Maybe a branding thing. Who knows. https://t.co/QIYE4lYTEd
